    A lot of the big name trainers tied themselves into sponship and the marketing to use their name for endorsements. Does anyone really think that Pat and Linda alone would have time to book arenas, the volunteers and all the machine that it takes to run these events with the frequency they are held? They'd never get off the phones. The sponsors look after this. They have the people, time and financial means to run the venues and retrieving some of the money put in to these is a normal business practice.

    It is not the sponcers that do that. These type things are set up just like a concert would be set up. A promoter is who does all the work. They also take all the risk.

    Can you show me someone you consider as a good rider, please?

    Do you see the differance? It is quite a big differance also. Down not only to the riding but the training on the horses.

    Also, a big thing about those riders and horses, they are not riding a horse that someone else trained. Those folks trained those horses to get to that point.

    These are all useful training methods. It is the basis of any form of training, reward good , punish bad. Punish not beat the holy caca out of them.
    These methods have been used for years, these guys went public media and are making a fortune now.

    And Pat, for one, fully acknowledges that these ideas "are so old they are new again".
    Large parts of his profits actually go to outreach programs and very heavy scholarship of new students. Several of my friends have gone to his ranch. Their training has been free, they just have to pay for food and accommodation.
    Don't know what programs the others have, but I'm sure they must also have scholarship programs.
    Besides, I thought America was the land where personal success was applauded. But maybe not if they are making money out of you pass time ?

    Use to be! Hasn't been that way for a while. Personal success is now pretty much vilified. Folks feel entitled to take their fair share of someone else's success. *shrugs*

    Personally, all these clinicians making a lot of money off of their training methods and equipment doesn't bother me. I hold no ill will over successful people. And by successful people in this sense I mean someone who can market themselves well, not necessarily good horsemen and women. I'm just smart about it. If I want a "stick" I can make one myself.
